Awesome

Love this thing. I find that it doesn't stay in tune to well when traveling but with the built in tuner it's really no issue.

A delight to play afterhours.

Greetings from Puerto Rico!

I fell in love with this specific UBass model since I saw it advertised from a local music instruments store. I did a lot of research via Youtube before purchasing, but oh boy, having it in my hands and enjoying it is another different story. Although at first it seems tiny, it really delivers. I love to sit late in the night before going to sleep and practice with it. It works really well amplified too. Looking forward to get another one, a Journeyman.

Great Product

I am a new owner of an Exotic Acoustic-Electric U-Bass. Very happy with the quality, feel and sound of the instrument although, the tuning is a little temperamental for a week or so prior to settling down. I liked the sound of the aquila thunderblack strings, however, I was looking for a brighter sound and the ability to slap, so I switched them out for silver plated round wounds. Switching the nut out for the smaller gauge of the round wounds was easy. Beautiful instrument with a surprisingly great low end for its size. Will definitely be my go-to travel bass.

LOVE MY KALA SPALTED MAPLE U-BASS FITTED WITH FLAT-WOUND STRINGS!

I’m thrilled with my new U-Bass, which I ordered fitted with the flat-wound Kala Gallistrings. Much easier and more fun for me to play than the lower-tension black Road Toad Pahoehoe strings that came on my first U-Bass. The Spalted bass is also lighter than my Solid Spruce Mahogany, which is great as I am a fairly small women with small hands. I’m only a beginner but my new Spalted has completely re-motivated me to practice daily, take lessons again, and strive to become the bassist for my ukulele groups.

My order was handled professionally and promptly by Ash after I pestered him with several questions before I made my selection, and my order arrived within only a few days. Thanks, Ash!

My only hesitation in giving a 5-star rating is my disappointment with the “deluxe” padded white logo Kala gig bag that my Spalted shipped in, which is about half the thickness of the truly deluxe blue-logo Kala padded gig bag that my Solid Spruce Mahogany came with. I would have gladly paid extra for the better bag but don’t even see it available for order on the Kala website. What happened to the higher quality bags? Please bring them back! (Also, please add specs such as bag thicknesses and measurements to all of your website gig bag descriptions. Comparison is difficult without some details.)

Otherwise, I give 5 Stars to the Spalted bass, to the flat-wound Gallistrings, and to Kala’s excellent customer service!
